About Gillian

I have eight years of tutoring experience in the areas of English grammar and literature, and more recently I have helped students in the process of college essay writing. In addition to receiving my BA, MA, and PhD in English, I have worked as an editor for a literary journal and a college counselor and essay coach for a private company. I currently teach literature at the university level and work with students on their writing. I have tutored middle and high school students privately for many years, as well.

I teach critical reading and writing courses, in addition to lectures, and am used to working independently with students to help them improve their writing. I edit extensively to ensure students develop the best assignments, but I also teach while I edit in order to help students improve grammatical and structural aspects of writing.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

College Counseling

I have worked as a college essay coach and consultant for California College Prep, helping students put together their applications for college. I have many years of experience writing, editing, and proofreading, but also have excelled in helping students generate ideas for their college essays based on conversations about their interests and achievements. Together, my students and I develop creative storylines to present their best selves to admissions committees. As a college professor, I am very familiar with the process of selecting and admitting students, and understand the keys to getting into college.
